This stove has a heavy nickel plated brass fount. The legs are nickel plated steel. The riser and spirit cup are also nickel plated. I suspect the burner may have been also as I can see a trace here and there, but I'm not really certain. For a budget model, this stove is a very high quality piece. The only thing I see that's budget oriented is the smaller pump. It's a very solid, well built stove that burns beautifully! The case it comes in holds everything nicely without fighting the pieces to get them to fit.
